Entrez Gene Summary for HSPD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the chaperonin family. The encoded mitochondrial protein may function as a signaling molecule in the innate immune system. This protein is essential for the folding and assembly of newly imported proteins in the mitochondria. This gene is adjacent to a related family member and the region between the 2 genes functions as a bidirectional promoter. Several pseudogenes have been associated with this gene. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified for this gene. Mutations associated with this gene cause autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia 13.

GeneCards Summary for HSPD1 Gene

HSPD1 (Heat Shock 60kDa Protein 1 (Chaperonin)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HSPD1 include spastic paraplegia 13 and spastic paraplegia 13, autosomal dominant. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and single-stranded DNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HSPD1 Gene

  • Implicated in mitochondrial protein import and macromolecular assembly. May facilitate the correct folding of imported proteins. May also prevent misfolding and promote the refolding and proper assembly of unfolded polypeptides generated under stress conditions in the mitochondrial matrix

  • Spastic paraplegia 13, autosomal dominant (SPG13) [MIM:605280]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11898127}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Leukodystrophy, hypomyelinating, 4 (HLD4) [MIM:612233]: A severe autosomal recessive hypomyelinating leukodystrophy. Clinically characterized by infantile-onset rotary nystagmus, progressive spastic paraplegia, neurologic regression, motor impairment, profound mental retardation. Death usually occurs within the first two decades of life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18571143}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
